  • Honoring my cousin Pat

    Posted on 5/28/16 - by Edward McNaboe emcnaboe@gmail.com
    I was only 9 years old when Pat was killed in action and i remember that day very well. After all these years there has not been a month that goes by when i don't think about Pat. My best memory is when Pat and his brothers would come to our house in Queens whenever we had a birthday or holiday party and he was always smiling and took the time to spend with his younger cousins. I miss him and he is always in my prayers.

    Dear CPL Patrick John McCormick, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
